I saw Fun Home at Gammage on 9/5/17

And it was such an incredible experience.

Spoilers for Fun Home below, of course. If you’re going to see Fun Home at Gammage, I especially don’t recommend reading this until you see the musical (go see the musical!! it’s so incredible!) but if you’ve seen the show already/don’t care about spoilers, read more for my take on some details!

Some Details of the Grady Gammage Auditorium Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, Arizona State University, Tempe, 2014.

Arguably one of Wright’s worst designs. I do not know how well it works as an auditorium, but the external characteristics look more 1960s shopping maul than a performing arts center on the campus of a major university.
